Nwar Family Literacy Programme

Nwar is an after-school, family literacy programme for primary school pupils who have not acquired the required basic literacy skills. The rationale of the Nwar programme is to support primary school students who are in Year 3 to Year 6 and who have been identified to be struggling with reading and spelling. Dedicated literacy tutors who have followed a professional development course in literacy, provide systematic literacy intervention to these students as well as encourage, up-skill and motivate parents/guardians who are required to accompany the student. Students are grouped on homogenous groups based on age, language chosen and literacy level (3/4 students per group). Sessions are 1 hour sessions, twice a week for a maximum period of 4 semesters (2 years) or until the student reaches basic literacy skills level.

This programme is held twice a week in 10 different locations in Malta and Gozo; Paola, Qormi San Bastjan, San Ġwann, Rabat, Hamrun, Birkirkara, Żabbar, Żurrieq, St Paul’s Bay and Xewkija. ​
